Come early August, on your drive down ECP (East Coast Parkway) – in the direction towards the CBD or Marina Bay Sands area – chances are you’d spot a big (white) top with a handful of tents sprouting on the grass fields, just beside the Sands Expo and Convention Centre. This big white top, the biggest of its kind seen in Singapore and across the world, requires 12 days and 150 people to set up, and it would house a traveling equestrian theatrical performing group called ‘Cavalia,’ which features horses as its main stars of attraction (more on next slide).
Cavalia’s novel and interesting concept is never seen before in Singapore, but it is not the first of its kind to be staged on our sunny shores. From theatrical-acrobatic performances, like the recently concluded Le Noir, to circuses and titillating cabaret shows, here are of some of the most unique travelling shows ever staged in Singapore.
